because dorner's burnt pick-up truck was found in the area earlier today. kron four's charles clifford continues our team coverage with a look at the difficult task of searching for a dangerous man in the snowy san bernardino mountians. >> reporter: big bear is about 100 miles east of downtown los angeles, in the san bernardino mountains. this is a view looking north across the area, big bear city sits here and just to the south of town is the bear mountain ski resort. now christopher dorner's burned out truck was found along a dirt road roughly a couple milesto the southwest of the ski area. this is a very remote location. there are a lot of pine trees and ravines. the terrain here is steep and rocky, also in the recent past there are have been forest fires in this area that have left a lot of debrie on the ground, that could make it tough for search teams on foot. also, there are apparently about 400 homes nearby. a lot of these residences are vacation homes and probably empty. search teams have been going door to door
8:06 pm
checking theses residences now, a command post has been set up in big bear city and swat team members have been carried via helicopter from a golf course to the area where dorner is believed to be hiding. now, one other curious thing, the video your watching is from kabc in los angeles and they spotted a fire burning about a mile away from the truck. we don't know if this has anything to do with the search for christopher dorner, but the flames seemed very out of place and there didn't appear to be anyone in the area. in the newsroom, charles clifford kron 4 news. >> in addition to multiple shootouts with officers earlier today.dorner is also accused of killing two people on sunday. here now a look at the deadly past few days in southern california. on sunday two people are found shot to death in their car.while sitting in a parking structure in irvine - just south of anaheim. police say christopher dorner killed monica quan and keith lawrence. quan is the daughter of a former los angeles police captain. fast forward now to 1:30 this the riverside county community of corona. that's where dorner allegedly gets into a shootout with two l-a-p-d officers who followed him after seeing his truck. one bullet grazes an officer

8:08 pm
and we've just uncovered a friend of the the search for dorner has led to some cases of mistaken identity and injuries. two women were shot and wounded in torrance this morning, when los angeles police fired shots at a truck which they mistakenly police say one woman suffered minor injuries. the other woman was shot twice. but is in stable condition. in torrance were involved in a second shooting. also involving a vehicle mistakenly believed to be dorner's. no one was hurt in that incident. and in san diego. police mistakenly arrest a man who looks similar to christopher dorner. the man says, someone at a hotel called police. after seeing him sitting in a parking lot. fift officers eventually realized they had the wrong man. and let him go. police say, dorner was in san diego. he had checked into a hotel on a naval base. and allegedly tried to steal a yacht. in an attempt to escape into mexico. christopher dorner apparently considered himself a whistle- blower on the police force -- and feels he was wrongly fired because of it. he was furious about losing his job back in 2008. and it is believed he finally decided to take revenge - after writing what he called his 'manifesto'. catherine heenan has details on that.
8:09 pm
>>catherine: despite all the photos showing a smiling christopher dorner. he has apparently been a very angry man. february 4th around 9 in the morning.he sat down to write his so-called manifesto on facebook. addressing it to "america". subject matter - "last resort" saying he wants to 'reclaim his name'. dorner says in part that he was targeted by the los angeles police department because he reported a fellow officer for kicking a suspect and using excessive force. in another incident.he says he squeezed an officer's neck after hearing him use offensive and racist terms. he says he now wishes he had simply shot the man. now, dorner writes "i will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in l-ap-d uniform whether on or off duty." dorner is angry about the people behind his firing. and angry about fellow officers he accuses of things like beating up a transient.pocketing drug money.
8:10 pm
and then lying about it. perhaps not expecting to come out of the drama alive. dorner wrote "unfortunately, i will not be alive to see my name cleared.a man is nothing without his name" dorner bragged that he was an expert in shooting. with the highest scores. he also taunted his targets -- saying- quote - "i never had the opportunity to have a family of my own. i'm terminating yours." officers quickly spread out to try to protect the people, he said he would target. stay with kron-4 as we follow the latest developments in the manhunt for triple murder suspect. christopher dorner. we'll have constant updates on our web site kron-4 dot com. as well as on our facebook page and twitter feed. new at 8 oclock. one of kevin collins brothers.
